    It isn't a personal choice, it a choice about someone else's body parts. And because of that very issue, it should be judged. If you made a personal and educated decision to have yourself circumsised, then that is different. But when someone makes that decision for someone else, without asking - then I do think they can be judged. I would say that about any non medical needed intervention on a baby or child.

    As for the urologist I'm not sure exactly how many as DH didn't want me to go to the appt with him (and I was at work anyway) but that it was a lot more common than people think.

    Actually, I don't think we should judge a person for choosing to get their sons cir'd, but question, yes. And discuss, yes!

    Meh. I have no problem judging people who make decisions based on reasoning that be considered flimsy at best.

    "So he looks like his dad," is one of the dumbest reasons there is. I will absolutely judge for that.

    And as an aside... just how much time is a young boy spending gawking at his Dad's wang that it's such a big issue anyway?

    I don't think I ever looked at my mother's breasts and thought, "Boohoo... why aren't I hairy, and why aren't my boobs big and round? Why don't my nipples look like hers?" I just assumed... women looked like that and I would grow up and resemble that a little more. It wasn't at all traumatic that my grown adult mother looked different in the nude to me. Are kids SUPPOSED to be upset if they don't look exactly like nude adults?

    On the issue of "cleanliness"...

    Both my ex and DF weren't circumcised, and I can say they were clearly taught differently about cleaning their bits.

    This may be TMI but the ex used to get quite smelly and I thought it was because he was uncut, until I met DF who doesn't have that problem at all. He was taught how to clean it properly from a young age and intends to do the same with our son.

    Although, in the collective 10 years of knowing these men, neither of them have ever had any infections down there, yet I myself have had a number of UTI's.

    Women in general are more prone to UTIs. I don't think you can blame your partners for those. Have you had any tests done? They can affect your kidneys if you get them often.

    Yes women are prone to UTI as the urethra is shorter. Infections don't have far to travel before being cleaned out by urine.

    I don't think she was trying to say her UTI's are from her partner, but rather just saying she has had UTI's but her intact sexual partners who both had different hygiene routines hadn't had a UTI before.
    I didn't read it as her intact partner was the cause.

    I could have interpreted it wrong though

    Simply, it's not my body to cut something off. So unless it was/is a medical issue, it's staying attached to my son.

    I couldn't do it and I don't really understand the reasons aside from medically necessary. If ever I have a boy, no way, no how!

    Hehe yeah, that's what I was trying to say.

    Even the "less cleaner" one never had any trouble down there. I just don't think "cleanliness" is a good enough reason anymore.

    why a parent would chose to impend on future sexual pleasure for their kids?!
    cause that is what circumcision is doing. it transforms a sensitive and fragile
    mucosa in a thick tough skin.
    the foreskin is there for a reason, protect the glans.

    Same thing with our eyelids, they actually protect our moist eyes. I'd hate to think how uncomfy our eyes would be without them... :-/
